Questions & Answers
There are many factors to consider when designing your custom deck and choosing the right contractor for your job. Please feel free to submit your question below and a professional from Decks Unlimited will answer a selected question each week.
Q: Does my deck require a building permit?
A: Generally speaking, decks under 30" in height will not require a permit. However, this is not the case in all municipalities. For instance, Parker and Centennial will require building permits on all decks regardless of height.
Q: My other contractor suggested I pull my building permit myself, is that your policy?
A: No!! Be wary of contractors and companies that want you to pull your own permits. Often it means this contractor is not licensed, or does not carry the necessary insurance to undertake the project. By pulling your own building permit, you assume all liability for the construction of the project. Should you contract with Decks Unlimited, we will submit all permit applications/prints, arrange structural engineering as required, pay permit fees, and schedule building inspections.
